RIP Frankie Banali

Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali sadly lost his fight with pancreatic cancer yesterday, a somber moment for rock. Banali had a truly incredible life changing rock history for the better and of course also was on the very first metal album to ever go number one, the legendary Metal Health (which sold over ten million glorious copies).

An official statement from his family said that Banali “put up an inspiringly brave and courageous 16-month battle to the end and continued playing live as long as he could. Standard chemotherapy stopped working, and a series ofΒ strokesΒ made the continuation on a clinical trial impossible. He ultimately lost the fight at 7:18PM on Aug. 20 in Los Angeles surrounded by his wife and daughter.”

Banali will be missed by fans and loved ones around the world.
